How Do You Use Twitter

The most common reason for NOT using Twitter–among those who don’t–is: Why tell everyone when I walk into my backyard?

Twitter is so much more than mundane details, as proven by its popularity. Here are some reasons I and my colleagues use Twitter:

  • stay in touch with friends
  • network
  • proselytize
  • distill my thoughts to sound bites of 140 characters
  • a quick update on celebrities/shows
  • promote my business
  • research
  • as the 21st century water cooler

Tell me why you use Twitter. If it’s not listed on the poll (like education–any use it in their classes?), add a comment at the bottom.
